They should all move to Canada. Quickly, like they promised.
Whoa, I'm Canadian, and I (we) don't want them up here either!
This is from yesterday, and while I generally don't like John Oliver, this is a great segment on the reporting of "scientific studies".
Played Robot Wars on my Apple ][+ when I was a wee lad in the early 80's.
You can download an excel spreadsheet with ALL codes and descriptions/explanations:

I know I'm going up against many years of case law here, but... the Fourth Amendment doesn't say anything about privacy. It says no searches and seizures without a warrant.
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Just last week I read about a psycho woman in Oregon who bashed a guy's skull in with an aluminum baseball bat on their first date, when he went out there to finally visit her in person after a 2 year long online relationship. They only gave her a sentence of a few MONTHS in jail for the incident, despite her planning the whole thing and getting another woman to assist her with it - AND saying she got the idea from something she read or saw that said it only takes 7 pounds of pressure to snap someone's neck. Which person are you more concerned will do people physical harm in the future??
If you're going to cite something like this, you really should provide a link to back up your claims.
She didn't "bash his skull in", she hit him and fractured his skull and caused two lacerations. He was treated and released released from hospital. No mention of a sentence of "a few months" in that article, or any other I could find. The woman in question is being held on $100,000 bail, and appears for an arraignment on April 20.
Additionally you can narrow it down just just include svchost.exe tasks:
I have my own company, with 1 business partner. We write software for 911 dispatch systems. Some of our clients require us to carry "Errors and Omissions" liability insurance, which costs us upwards of $15k a year. Along with with the insurance, we have a pretty detailed EULA agreement covering bugs, etc.
If you're writing any kind of software that could directly affect the safety of others, insurance is a must.
Or anything else wearable. Watch the video at the linked site. They're applying upwards of 15kV to the polymer to get creases to form, and even then they're microscopic.
Did the story submitter not watch the video?

It would be interesting to include penetration of the box.
Tried that on a date once. Got my face slapped.
